BassDrumBone
The Other Parade

BassDrumBone: The Other Parade (Clean Feed)
Label: Clean Feed    
Released in: Portugal    


"After thirty-four years, a good idea - another reconvening of three of the most intriguing and inspiring musicians of the creative jazz scene, namely Mark Helias, Gerry Hemingway and Ray Anderson - who have continuously developed into one of the best units in the planet devoted to imaginative combinations between the composed and the improvised.

By now every public presentation and recording by BassDrumBone is something worthy of our full attention. Once again, there are many good reasons to dive into this fantastic musical world. With this new release of The Other Parade, the double bassist, the drummer and the trombonist embrace the "Afro-American continuum" (to use Braxton's terminology), in their own unique and authentic way- with tracks such as "Blue Light Down the Line" and "King Louisian" which flow from the river of blues song and the deep root of Louisiana rhythms and melodies.

Simply put, this is one of those CDs which make a jazz music language very much of the present, alive and invigorated. You can't miss it. If you do, you lose a fundamental piece of what is happening in the music of our time."-Clean Feed



"Mark Helias is a renowned bassist, composer and producer who has performed throughout the world for more than four decades with some of the most important and innovative musicians in Jazz and Improvised Music including Don Cherry, Edward Blackwell, Anthony Davis, Dewey Redman, Anthony Braxton, Abbey Lincoln, Cecil Taylor, and Uri Caine among many others. A prolific composer, Helias has written music for two feature films as well as chamber pieces and works for large ensemble and big band. His orchestra piece "Stochasm" was premiered by the American Composers Orchestra in June of 2011. Twelve recordings of his music have been released since 1984, his latest being "The Signal Maker" on the Intakt label. He teaches at Sarah Lawrence College, and SIM (School for Improvisational Music) in Brookyn, NY."

"Ray Anderson has been continually noted as a contributor to the legacy of the slide trombone since his emergence in the 1970's, having won numerous Down Beat Critics Polls. He has shown remarkable musical range on the slide trombone and as a result reawakened interest in the instrument's expressive possibilities and sonic scope. He has led or co-led and composed for a daunting assortment of projects including tradition-minded ensembles, experimental groups, big bands, blues and funk projects and even a trombone quartet. He has performed and recorded with Anthony Braxton, David Murray, Charlie Haden's Liberation Music Orchestra, Dr. John, the George Gruntz Concert Jazz Band, Luther Allison, Bennie Wallace, Henry Threadgill, John Scofield, Roscoe Mitchell, the New York Composers Orchestra, Sam Rivers' Rivbea Orchestra and countless others. Anderson is a gifted teacher and has been the Director of Jazz Studies at Stony Brook University since 2003. Anderson has received grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Fund for U.S. Artists at International Festivals, the Oberon Foundation and Chamber Music America. In 2001 he became a John S. Guggenheim Fellow."
